Today I got an email from the organizers of the event saying this

“your total now stands at £1085.73 so very well done “.

Somehow the count of the offline donations on my justgiving page is wrong , but I don’t care.

You may not remember but the minimum amount to raise for participation in £1080 , so I have past that mile stone and my participation is guaranteed.

YES !!!

A turning point

Categories: Fund raising | May 10th, 2011 | by Assi | no comments

During the last weekend I did a fund raising time in the local branch of Pets at home, unlike the last time I arrived early (opening) and stayed until closing time .
I had 2 collection boxes , some stickers and my fliers , by the end of the first day I was left with one sticker and two very heavy collection boxes.

In the second day the sticker went after the first hour , but the people in the shop ( clients not staff) still showed interest and willing to donate.

Today I went to the bank to deposit the money , in both days I managed to collect £349.07 in total.
The gamer in me now will be even harder on the players that carry 4000 copper pieces and do not count them for the encumbrance rules, Man those coins were heavy , Carrying my Daughter on my back ( and she is 9kg ) was lighter the the coins, so no more PC’s walking around with 4K of coins !!!!

To my delight Aiki Linux consulting added £140 to the Pot and that gave a nice push to the total amount.

I am now past the £1000 mark and more confident that I will participate , so the training regime is kicking in to full gear … Wish me luck !!!
